Planters Recalls Mislabeled Cashews

Compiled From Wire Services

Planters Co. said Friday it is recalling some bags of Honey Roasted Cashews because they may contain peanuts that could be fatal to people allergic to them.

The 2-ounce bags were distributed to stores in eastern and southern states, Northern California and Hawaii. The blue metallic bags are stamped with the numbers 1-7-98. The package ingredients do not list peanuts.

No other Planters products are affected, the company said.

Peanut allergies can cause serious or life-threatening reactions.

Planters said consumers with peanut allergies who have bought the cashews should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
